The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. 


Selborne has been awarded the platinum reward as a result of four consecutive gold awards.

Ealing Learning Partnership (ELP) is a partnership between schools and the council to promote educational excellence and wellbeing for all learners through collaboration and innovation. With the motto of ‘no learner left behind - no school left behind’, work builds on the strengths and success of the partnership in creating the conditions for schools to share knowledge and expertise with each other through structured collaboration.  Mrs Shilling, our Headteacher, is an ELP Cluster Lead for one of the five clusters of approx. 14 primary and special needs schools and they work together for the benefit of all Ealing pupils.

Selborne Primary School has continually engaged in the Healthy Schools London Awards. We have received platinum, gold, silver and bronze awards as well as our sugar smart award. Selborne is a water only school and all children bring eco-friendly water bottles to school. We have worked hard to reduce the sugar content in our school meals. Children learn about healthy eating and the importance of daily exercise in the PSHE curriculum. EYFS learn about the importance of oral health and have regular talks from the dentist and take part in tooth brushing.  In their D. T lessons children are taught how to cook healthy recipes.


Selborne Primary school are gold accredited for our School travel plan 2022-2023.

Transport for London have launched Travel for Life (formerly STARS). Its aim is to help young Londoners travel sustainably and make better decisions that impact their lives and the lives of those around them. At Selborne we equip children with the skills needed to navigate London. In the early years we teach the children how to ride bikes and scooters. Through our road safety programme, they learn how to cross the road safely. Year three children carry out pedestrian training on the local roads. The older children can work towards their bike ability certificates.


Active travel plays a big part in the school ethos. We have lots of scooter and bike parking on our grounds.  We take part in the bi annual walk to school weeks and the big walk and wheel. The Junior Travel Ambassadors Scheme promote active travel and competitions. Through the curriculum children learn about the environmental impact of car use. Year 5 children have taken part in anti idling campaigns. We work closely with the local police and Year 6 children have regular talks about keeping safe when walking to school and travelling on public transport. They are also assisted in map skills to plan their routes to High School during their transition work.

At Selborne Primary School, we have successfully achieved the green flag award 2 years in a row. The Eco-committee, which have been elected democratically reflecting our British Values, have an important role to ensure their peers are more environmentally aware and undertake daily actions to be more eco-friendly and follow our eco-code. 

Selborne Primary School has achieved asthma friendly status.
